Which RAM mount for te450 stock mirror holder?

Recommended Posts

I'm having a hard time finding which RAM mount to use that will screw into my stock mirror holder (2007 te450).

Can anyone help confirm which one I should be ordering? I was thinking of this part:

http://products.ram-mount.com/rammount/productdetail.aspx?partnumber=RAM-B-349U

( RAM-B-349U RAM BASE W/ M10 X 1.25 PITCH & 1" BALL )

But just wanted to be sure before placing the order... it would suck waiting a few weeks for it to arrive just to find out it's the wrong size!

Thanks for any help you can provide!

If anyone needs this info in the future, just thought I would update this post - I have confirmed that M10 bolts with 1.25 pitch threads screw into the 2007 te450 stock mirror holders.

I ended up using a mount slightly different than the ball posted above... here's my setup:

I used a ball mounted to a short piece of metal (part # RAM-B-252) that gives me a little more mounting leeway - I thought the ball coming straight out from the mirror holder might get in the way of cables. A 2 cm M10x1.25 bolt from the hardware store attaches the swivel-ball to my mirror holder. From there a ball-to-ball arm connects to a water-proof Aqua Box that I can use to hold either my car GPS or my nokia pocket PC that uses satellite imagery for off-road GPS uses.

The great thing about it is that you can leave the swivel-ball connected to your bike permenantly, and remove/connect the rest of the stuff in seconds. I don't normally need GPS for most activities, but it sure comes in handy during adventure rallys where they give you the GPS route prior to the run.
